Crap Endocrine System

Thin privilege is being able to feel upset about my diabetes diagnosis without the attacking inner voices telling me that it’s my fault and if I weren’t fat I wouldn’t have gotten diabetes. Because heredity counts for nothing, of course. Diabetes runs in my family, in people of all sizes.

I already have a messed up thyroid gland, now this. Wonderful. But of course it’s all my fault for being fat.
